Player News
Braves' Kelly Johnson drives in three runs in win on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:18 pm ET) First baseman Kelly Johnson had a big game for the Braves in their 9-5 win over the Phillies on Saturday. Johnson got the scoring started with a two-run single, kicking off a four-run first inning. 

Then, with the Braves already up 8-1 in the fourth, Johnson drove in the Braves' final run of the night with an RBI single in another four-run inning.

Overall, Johnson went 2 for 3 with three RBI and a run scored. The three RBI are the most he's had in a game since he had four on May 5.


Dodgers RP J.P. Howell earns save as Kenley Jansen sits
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:17 pm ET) Barack Obama was in his third year as president the last time Dodgers left-hander J.P. Howell recorded a save.

Howell now has a save for both of his terms in office. He registered another by striking out Curtis Granderson to nail down a win Saturday night aganst the Mets. His last previous save was in 2011.

His usage in that role was necessitated by the unavailability of closer Kenley Jansen, who threw 24 pitches in taking the loss Friday and has allowed a run in each of his last three appearances.


Phillies' Cesar Hernandez batting .447 during nine-game hit streak
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:14 pm ET) Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez increased his hitting streak to nine games with a 2-for-5 effort on Saturday. Hernandez also drove in a run, but the Phillies fell to the Braves by a score of 9-5.

Hernandez is batting .447 with a double, a triple and four RBI over the nine-game stretch. However, the Phillies are just 1-8 in that span. 


Mets SP Matt Harvey no match for Greinke in Saturday loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:07 pm ET) One might have assumed that Mets starter Matt Harvey had shed the inconsistency that had plagued him in late May and early June when he put together three successive strong performances.

But one might have assumed wrong.

Harvey needed to be on top of his game Saturday night against Dodgers stud Zack Greinke, but he was at the bottom. He gave up seven hits and walked five in five innings, leading to three runs. He fanned four along the way.

The right-hander, whose record fell to 7-6, gave up a solo home run to Adrian Gonzalez and RBI single to Alberto Callaspo in a fifth inning that all but doomed his team to defeat.


Twins RP Glen Perkins works clean inning Saturday for 27th save
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:04 pm ET) Twins closer Glen Perkins recorded his 27th save in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Royals. Perkins worked another perfect ninth inning, striking out a pair of batters on the way. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run in his last 11 appearances.

Royals' Joe Blanton loses second straight start on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:01 pm ET) Royals right-hander Joe Blanton gave up four runs on nine hits over five innings in the 5-3 loss to the Twins on Saturday. Blanton struck out four and did not walk a batter, but he picked up his second consecutive loss.

Blanton (2-2, 3.74 ERA) got off to a bad start on Saturday, as he gave up a two-run home run to Joe Mauer in the first inning. He would give up another run later in the inning, before allowing an RBI triple to Trevor Plouffe in the fifth inning. 

After allowing two earned runs over 11 innings in his first two starts of the season, Blanton has now allowed eight runs in 7 2/3 innings.

It remains to be seen if he will get another start, as the Royals are expecting to have Yordano Ventura back from the disabled list next week sometime. 


Twins SP Mike Pelfrey goes four innings in no-decision Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:55 pm ET) Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey came away with another disappointing outing on Saturday. Pelfrey lasted just four-plus innings against the Royals. He allowed three runs on seven hits, while walking three and striking out three. Pelfrey was able to escape with a no-decision, however, as the Twins held on to beat the Royals 5-3.

The Twins staked Pelfrey to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, and he was able to keep the Royals off the board for the first four innings. But, after the Twins tacked on another run, Pelfrey allowed the first three men to face him in the fifth to reach base before Lorenzo Cain singled in a pair. Pelfrey was then lifted for a reliever, but another run would come into score before the inning was over.

Pelfrey's ERA sits at 3.94 now, and he has allowed 11 runs over six innings in his last two starts.


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke runs shutout streak to 28 in win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:54 pm ET) So much for Clayton Kershaw being the ace of the Dodgers staff. Zack Greinke has wrested that distinction away from the southpaw.

Greinke continued to be virtually unhittable Saturday against the albeit punchless Mets. He ran his scoreless streak to 28 innings by shutting out New York through seven and earning his sixth win in eight decisions.

The right-hander, who now boasts a ridiculous MLB-leading 1.48 ERA, allowed four hits with no walks and four strikeouts. He has issued three walks while fanning 23 during his scoreless stretch.


Braves CF Cameron Maybin homers, steals bag on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:39 pm ET) Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin fell a triple short of the cycle on Saturday, as he went 3 for 5 with a double, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in the 9-5 win over the Phillies.

Maybin, who also stole his 15th bag of the season, knocked his seventh home run of the season in the second inning. His solo shot gave the Braves an early 5-0 lead. 

Maybin has managed to stay hot at the plate recently, as he's hitting .326 with two home runs over his last 10 starts.


Twins RP Ryan Pressly sustains shoulder strain Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:36 pm ET) Twins reliever Ryan Pressly was removed from the game Saturday night in Kansas City with a right shoulder strain, MLB.com has reported.

He pitched one shutout inning and threw 11 of 13 pitches for strikes before going down.
